Currently dreaming of Cannon Beach..
 

DREAMING

...of Cannon Beach. Rain or shine, this quaint coastal town in Oregon is sure to capture your eye, and shortly after, perhaps your heart too. Take a walk along the beach for some surfer spotting and breathe in the salty ocean air. We highly recommend browsing Air Bnb for some breathtaking oceanfront homes, stopping by Insomnia Coffee for a perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up, and visiting Dragon Fire Gallery to see some local art.

All black everything. That’s my uniform. Call me a minimalist, but I live by Mies van der Rohe’s words “Less is more.”

For me, minimalist dressing is about understated luxury. And mastering a carefully edited wardrobe. The trick is building a collection of simple staples and tailored pieces in luxurious fabrics. Cashmere, wool, silk, leather.. fabrics that will last and wear beautifully over time. While the concept may seem basic, the pieces you buy will be anything but.

 My wardrobe is mostly black.  I love effortless pieces that work well together or on their own. But if you keep your colour palette streamlined -- black, navy, grey, nude, white -- you can still pair pieces together with ease. It also makes it easier to experiment with different silhouettes and textures.

For this outfit, I paired a loose fitting wool turtleneck by COS with tapered black trousers by Babaton. I layered on this wool overcoat by Everlane. I love the menswear inspired shape. Plus its a beautiful Italian milled wool and cashmere blend. For accessories, this Smythson travel wallet is my go-to. It's a streamlined shape and style, but when you open it up, it is roomy with dividers for everything you need to carry with you. And finally the perfect everyday ankle boots from Zara

We shot this look in the FSC Bridge in Toronto. The collaboration of two of my favourite artists, Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins, and architect James Khamsi, It's a beautiful example of public art and architecture at play. I love the look of the black and white aluminum cladding on the facade.  The triangular glass windows cast light and shadow into the interior, reflecting off the geometric murals.
